I ordered a total of 85 organza chair bows and 12 table overlays (72x72 for 60" round tables) for $188...not bad considering if I went with the resort's option it would have been WAY more I ordered from efavormart.com
I also just did my table seating chart and think it'll work out great...so excited!
It's getting SO close and I'm starting to stress...still have to buy the shirts for the groomsmen, my dad's outfit, my jewelry and veil, FI's shoes, and the reception dinner menus. I'm shopping tonight for the shirts/outfits, shoes, and jewelry and will do the menus this weekend. Veil is another issue...
Also need to figure out wedding party/parent gifts and what we want to do in terms of welcome bags, cigar roller, pashminas...and then also the seating cards (we're wrapping electric tealights with vellum with the people's name and table on the vellum)
then it'll just be shopping for the wedding and honeymoon wardrobe oh yea, and lose 10lbs
No joke, I got engaged late November, spend December researching resorts, booked I think January 7th, and then married April 1st! So about 2.5 months between booking and departure date. And I still got all the essentials done (i.e. my dress & accessories, groom's outfit, bridesmaid dresses, wedding bands, photographer etc) plus a bunch of extras (newsletters, OOT bags, guest t-shirts, DIY travel mugs, and all my decor items)
Seriously, you have tons of time to do it all. Remember the advice of all of us been-there-done-that-brides "I wish I had stressed less"
